    Commission Cosplay Titan: Part 8

    This is it – eight whole build logs later, I promise we’re done. Fini. For our normal armors for Anime Expo, we build almost every single day of the week for three/four weeks straight to churn out a Gundam.

This makes it seem like we’re making especially good time, but there’s still a lot to be done – fitting the straps will be particularly daunting, and painting takes several days on its own.
